petraeus assume the right to allow people, who represent the very opposite of president obama's philosophy to advise him? what agenda was he seeking here? was he buying into the hawkish agenda of those who advocate war in iraq? if so, why was he working for president obama, who stood out there against that war? i have to think that petraeus either doesn't understand politics and ideology, or he shares the ideology of those who have stood against obama from the beginning. this is really strange, really strange. and someone in the administration better start paying attention to who is getting into the tent, and who they are indeed working for. backing the iraq war and the mentality behind it is no small thing. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.

. >> obama: the fact that this problem is complex can no longer be an excuse for doing nothing. the fact that we can't prevent every act of violence doesn't mean we can't steadily reduce the violence. and prevent the very worst violence. that's why i've asked the vice president to lead an effort that includes members of my cabinet and outside organizations to come up with a set of concrete proposals no later than january proposals that i then intend to push without delay. this is not some washington commission. this is a team that has a very specific task, to pull together real reforms right now. that those of us who were sent here to serve the public trust can summon one tiny iota that those teachers in newtown summoned on friday. if cooperation and common sense prevail, then i'm convinced we can make a sensible and intelligent way to make the united states of america a safer, stronger place for our children to learn and to grow. >> eliot: the president focused specifically on three proposals that appeared to have significant and growing support closing the gun show loophole so that bac
reallyity illustrates the lack of transparency in the obama administration. for the president each to get out there on a national stage and tell americans untruths about this situation in benghazi, really begs you to ask the question, what else does he say and do that would be deceptive? i believe it's many, many things that he would say and do being deceptive. >> it certainly is curious. there were two letters sent by secretary of state late last night to the chairman of the two former relations committee in the house and the senate and she talks about how immediately, their eyes are on al qaeda. if their eyes were on al qaeda, what in the world did this video stuff come up with? the president, ambassador and president on "the view." what in the world were they trying to do with the video business? >> bottom line, during the campaign in the final day, barack obama wanted to keep that false narrative alive that he, mr. nobel peace prize-wing president of ours -- he pretty much quashed the terrorists' activities, if you will, of the islamic countries that he was able to reach out and -- ki

was there yesterday in the white house briefing room when president obama announces a task force on guns. he put vice president joe biden in charge. he gave them only one month to come up with a set of recommendations that he would then push through congress. and then he opened up the floor to questions and all the white house press corps wanted to talk about was the fiscal cliff. come on! it just shows how out of it they are. they can't get outside the beltway. they don't know what the american people really care about! all right. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here. but first, before we get to your calls, we'll take time out to get the latest, today current news update from lisa ferguson joining us from los angeles. good morning, lisa. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. that task force is wasting no time getting to work, as bill mentioned, that's the task force president obama commissioned in the wake of the newtown tragedy. vice president joe biden will hold his first official meeting today. the group will dev
, [speaking spanish] er of the house, john boehner is pressing for a deal with president obama that would include $twenty one -- $1 trillion in cuts, what it really means is a tax on millionaires and only $250 billion of entitlement cuts will happen now through a proposal to slow social security growth by using a different inflation formula to calculate cost of living increases and any commitment to a process in 2013 that brings the rest of the revenue and the rest of the cuts -- supposedly. i don't trust it. nation, boehner is willing to give obama a one-year debt limit increase. obama wants it for two years to deny republicans the leverage they have to force reductions in spending come 2013 and he wants $80 billion in in42 structure and unemployment benefits. boehner is arguing that a proposal by obama for only $850 billion in spending cuts and $8 trillion in spending. that's miles per hour plan "a" and captures the broad contours. if a dole, they have to sell it to their parties. in an indication of how far the negotiations have shifted in the past year. boehner confirmed that his defi
of what that person will do in the next year and beyond and obama is a perfect example of that. the next america is the america of today. which is why in effect he's person of the year. because he's the architect of this new america and i actually think it's a great thing because it's a more tolerant america, a more diverse america. >> rose: osborne and stengel. next. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: george osborne is here. he is britain's chancellor of the exchequer. he has been called the austerity chancellor. he continues to lead the increasingly controversial austerity process. in a piece called "god sieve the british economy" in the upcoming "new york times" magazine adam davidson writes "in the past two years the united states has experienced a steep downturn followed by steady though horrendously slow upturn. the british economy, however, is profoundly stuck. the u.k. has been put on negative watch on three largest credit rating agencies. the european union is britain's largest trading partner, europe's e
on the fiscal cliff. from president obama or speaker boehner. the two have not spoken since monday. instead this evening republicans will be voting on boehner's plan b, which they have attached as an amendment to a law rejecting trade with burma. that original bill was passed in response to a hard line ber meez government with a history of entransigence. the burm ease has nothing to do -- in an amendment to make ate a hard line party with a history of intransigence. >> the house will pass ledges lakes to make permanent tax relief for nearly every american. 99.81% of the american people. >> even if boehner scrapes together enough votes to pass plan b, senate democrats and the president have vowed to block it, so the whole endeavor is yet another act of outrageous and generally useless political theater. as if that wasn't enough, late last night majority leader eric cantor introduced a second bill, a sweetener of sorts for plan b. one that would replace the automatic defense cuts scheduled for january 1st, and instead make additional cuts to programs including food stamps, meals on wheels, an

>>> let me finish tonight with this. president obama is a conviction politician. that means he stands for things. he runs for office to accomplish things. he believed in health care and he got it done. he opposed unnecessary wars and is now being attacked for someone who shares his view. chuck hagel is someone said barack obama with a war record we barely associate with the neoconservatives. the president should pick a secretary of defense he trusted of doing the best job of helping him defend the country. that's "hardball" for now. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks to you. tonight's lead, the gop crack up. in less than two hours, speaker boehner and his house republicans will vote on the tax planl. so what is the plan from the leader of the least productive congress in more than 60 years? extending the bush tax cuts for all income up to $1 million a year. amazing. they say they're serious about the deficit. but if you make $900,000, you can get a tax cut. they're not voting to protect american families, just the richest of them.

animosity. i think it is probably the latter. president obama had a lot of his officials, including treasury secretary geiger and others meeting with some business leaders today. including the chamber of commerce and the national association of gun control. they feel that it undercuts the whole compromise that they have been working on. keeping fingers crossed. gerri: i do want to talk to you about your book, "the outpost." just two years in the making, how d you ever find time to write this book? >> well, it became something of a mission for me to tell the stories of these troops. as i told you once privately, i was in the hospital with my newborn son, jack. i looked up in the recovery room and saw this report about an attack on the outpost.
